I love the show; My Life is Murder https://rismovieblog.wordpress.com/2019/11/06/my-life-is-murder/ I have been a fan of Lucy Lawless since the Xena days following her career, going to cons and going to singing performances, she is such a talented lady! I really hope this show is renewed!

Five Complete Miss Marple Novels: The Mirror Crack’d, A Caribbean Mystery, Nemesis, What Mrs. McGillicuddy Saw!, The Body in the Library by Agatha Christie

Well, I had read all the Miss Marple books in this volume before, but the first thing that struck me was that the order of the books made no sense. The Mirror Crack’d first, makes no sense at all, since the volume includes The Body in the Library which came first. What Mrs. McGillicudy Saw was also set and written before the first book. I am not sure what the publishers were thinking.

The stories are all brilliant and I enjoyed re-reading the books. I always enjoy Miss Marple and reading these books I found I forgotten parts or replaced them in my mind with adaptions in TV or movies.

The one I enjoyed a lot and forgotten the most was Nemesis. I think I had read the book once or twice but I had completely replaced it in my mind with the adaptions which all have a nephew accompanying her but in the book she went alone. And the Professor was far more involved in the story then in the adaptions.

I know that one stop shops are not really that popular because of the order the books are placed but it is also a way to have several of one of your favorite authors at your fingertips. So I do recommend it.

Book Reviews; 

Out on a LimbOut on a Limb by Shirley MacLaine
It’s funny, I have read this book so many times that my copy is dogeared, not by folding down the edge ( I was taught never to do that,) but by being read over and over. I still find it fascinating. I had no idea that some of the people were composites, I always wondered what happened to David. He sort of disappeared in the mountains in the end. I just hoped he made it home alright, I found out later that he was actually several people, so I guess he did.

I know the focus of the book was Shirley and Gerry, (I later found out who he was too, and it was two different men. (at different times.) ) but I found the interaction with Bella Abzug and David much more compelling. And because I was very interested in my own spiritual search when I was in my early twenties, it was my go to book about trance channeling, and other pursuit of spiritual understanding. I was actually in college at the time and my adviser found me reading it a bit worrying, but since I was completely devoted to my education, she put it down to youthful pursuits. Hehehehe.

Well it has been years and I found the romance part a bit difficult to get through. I would have to push myself to read it. Not because of any judgmental feelings but I just wasn’t that interested in that part. (I have had my own life experiences now, so I am not as transfixed as I was when I was a much more innocent 23 year old.) I found some the theories still hold up. And others do not. I still find both David and Bella much more important relationships for Shirley and something that I still learn from. I think that my need to read the book was because of what she had in those friendships and how they were guides (David) and supportive (Bella) to her pursuits and needs. And that is why I gave the book 5 stars. It is the most beautiful part and the part that stands the test of time.

Southern Attraction- The College YearsSouthern Attraction- The College Years by Tracy Kauffman
Southern Attraction-The College Years continues the journey with Heather Brandon and her amazing boyfriend Jake as they go off to college. Heather struggles with insecurities of her past while trying to find a peaceful life. She had dealt with enough heartache to last a lifetime, including losing her parents, and surviving a tornado that ripped apart her new home. She wants Jake to settle down so they can enjoy their life together. Now all she wants to do is live a life of happiness and not worry about the man she loves.

I received the book from the author for an honest review.

The story is very good, the relationship between Jake and Heather showed that you can overcome the obstacles when you believe in each other. PTSD is very real, important and the sufferer’s torment about past happenings, very traumatic. It is also an honest portrayal. It is with knowledge about both the people who suffer from it and those who live with the people who suffer from it and what they go through. It is an important issue that needs to be understood by the public.

I do have to admit that this was a hard book for me to read, the characters were so distant. I know that angst is compelling but there should be some relief, some comic moments. Humor is always a good way for people to survive torment. It is why there is always humor in a thriller, the audience can only take so much. It would make so much easier for the reader.

I do recommend the book, it is a well done depiction of people who love each other, finding their way.
